VSN cards

Over at SCS this weekend they've been holding a Virtual Stamping Night and I managed to complete 3 of the challenges.

The first challenge was to make a clean and simple card (no more than 2 layers) with the theme of summer foods. I usually struggle with clean and simple but here's my card:

Materials used: Kraft recycled cardstock, Unity stamps, October Afternoon papers, white Versacolor ink, Bazzill ruffled ribbon, DCWV brads, black Signo pen.

The second challenge I completed was to make a card with a window theme or a shadowbox card. I went for the shadowbox card following the tutorial on SCS here.

Materials used: Kraft recycled cardstock, K&Co papers, Unity stamps (trees and clouds with rainbow), Promarkers, Making Memories tiny alphabet stickers, Prima flowers, Kaiser rhinestone, Stickles.
Also used: wooden bird embellishment.

The third card I made was for a challenge to make a card that is it animals, fruit, buildings etc.

Materials used: Papermill cardstock, Artistic Outpost stamps, brown Memento ink, Ranger distress inks, K&Co Blossomwood papers, HOTP buttons.
Also used: leather thong, various twines.

Wish I'd had the chance to complete more challenges but the timing was wrong LOL!! Maybe next time!
